The Falmouth Republican Committee has picked a new candidate to run for the District 112 seat in the state House of Representatives.
The local GOP this week selected 26-year-old John Logan Jones, a 2004 Falmouth High School graduate who enlisted in the U.S. Air Force as a linguist. Jones was honorable discharged from the Air Force in 2009.
Jones was also elected at the Maine Republican Party state convention as one of the party's 24 delegates going to the national convention to be held in Tampa, Fla. in August.
Jones, who is expected to replace GOP placeholder Patricia Kirby, will face Democratic incumbent Rep. Mary Nelson.
